    The village of Whalley has tripled in size through new build. One of the reasons developers were successful in planning applications was that Whalley is a service hub. Then the library was closed through cuts in local authority funding.

    It has re- opened as a result of a difference political majority at County Hall. It is being run as cheaply as possible.


    The library is free, inclusive, warm, welcoming and serves all members of the community, young and old as well as the primary school nearby. It is an essential service, providing a social community meeting place which will help to connect new residents with established Whalley residents.


    Please find our libraries.

    Libraries are SO important. I have been appalled at the way they’ve been starved of resources over the past 10 – 12 years. Please, please, please commit to supporting htem moving forward.
